Estee Lalonde is one of my favourite blogger/vlogger. She has written a book and it was published last Thursday. There was a book signing on Thursday at Waterstones in Tottenham Court Road. A few weeks ago I saw that Estee posted about the book signing on Instagram and thought immediately that I had to be there and that’s what I did.
I arrived way too early but that didn’t matter in the queue I met two lovely other girls and we chatted about things and at the end of the signing sessions we swapped our numbers and took a photo together. We also have already planned to do other things with the three of us. It was great to meet those girls that made the evening already to a big success.
Meeting Estee was so lovely but also surreal. I’ve been watching many videos of her and it feels a bit like you really know her but when I saw her in real life I was a bit flabbergasted.
The face I’ve seen many times on video’s and photos is standing in front of you, it’s so weird but amazing.
She took her time to have a chat with everyone. It was lovely to see her talk to all the other people but then it was my turn to go and see her. The first thing she said to me was ‘’Wow, we have the same face’’. I thought are you for real? As I never thought we had the same face but never mind it was cool she said that. She signed my book and wrote face twins in it as well. How cute of her.
I was ready to go on the photo with her when she asked ‘can I put you in my vlog?’ The girls I met in the queue were screaming OMG how cool. I said yes of course you can, actually not knowing what I put myself into. Before I knew she put her camera in my face and I didn’t know what to do so I decided to say hi and smile nicely. We took a photo together and when I walked away I thought she will never put the bit with me in her vlog. I was actually hoping she wouldn’t as I thought I would look ridiculous in that video. Yesterday I was watching her vlog and she did put me in her vlog, luckily it wasn’t that bad at all and now I think it’s cool she put me in her vlog even that it’s only for a few seconds.
It was such a wonderful experience not only meeting Estee but the whole book signing session. I think I have only been smiling the two hours I had to wait to finally get my book signed and meet Estee Lalonde.
The whole thing was about her book of course so let me tell something about her book as well. The book is called Bloom navigating life and style. I haven’t finished reading the book yet so I can’t give a full review about it right now but I can explain what the book is about. In the book you can read about Estee’s journey to find herself, the road she walked to be the Estee she is today. It’s Estee’s journey but it will give you loads of inspiration. She shares things about life, people, work, beauty, fashion, home, travel and food.
Estee wanted to write a book where she could give something to us, to the people what reading her book. I have only been reading a few pages but so far she has done a very great job in getting me inspired. I’m looking forward to read the whole book.
Even if you don’t follow Estee Lalonde I’m sure this book will be great for many people as you will get inspired in many different ways.
If you don’t follow Estee Lalonde yet I would highly recommend to go and follow her straight away. Her blog and vlogs are about lifestyle, beauty, fashion and many more things. Now you think there are already so many bloggers like this but the thing I like so much about Estee is that she is so normally and herself with not big attitude. It really could be your best friend. The way she is and the video’s she makes is exactly what I’m looking for when I want to follow a blogger/vlogger.
